Never underestimate the importance of cleaning your closet and organizing it so that you can see all of the pieces you have to work with. You can find all sorts of hidden treasures that you swore you would never forget about, but inevitably did. Revisit those old goodies! You cannot imagine how many more ways you can style your old clothes to make an updated outfit.
Below are 5 of my favorites that I re-vamped. Each outfit is a combination of an older piece with a new piece to create a fresh updated look.
Outfit 1: Go-Getter Office Wear
Old Piece: Slightly worn out dress purchased on sale at Banana Republic. Needs a structured jacket to make it more formal.
New Piece: New Leopard Blazer from R Meyers.
Updated Look: Paired it together and added some pearls and pumps to complete the look.
Outfit 2: Casual Summer Outfit
Old Piece: Floral shorts with a soft breezy fabric.
New Piece: Jean button down (wish I would have known and kept mine from years ago).
Updated look: Put the pieces together to make a relaxed outfit for summer. Add a statement necklace.
Outfit 3: Jazzed Up Dress
Old Piece: Hand me down dress from my sister, who knows how long it has been around!
New Piece: Cool leather jacket.
Updated look: Pairing the non fitted cotton dress with a slick leather jacket creates a relevant outfit. Silver hoops and Steve Madden boots.
Outfit 4: Western Summer Look
Old Piece: Cream lacey dress from two summers ago. Lace was everywhere!
New Piece: Coral button down.
Updated Look: Top the lace dress with a coral button down tied at the waist. Cowboy boots and you’re ready!
Outfit 5: Leather Chic
Old Piece: Off the shoulder striped shirt, I got many many years ago in Paris. Couldn’t get rid of that one!
New Piece: Leather pants.
Updated Look: Take an older shirt add some leather leggings and voila! Black wedges and bangles.
Before you go out and spend money you don’t have, check your own closet. Making sure to always hang up your nice clothes and put them away is highly recommended to keep them lasting their longest to make creating an updated look possible!
